The Butcher Zurich

My personal highlight: Stepping in the kitchen at “The Butcher”, getting introduced to all properties to prepare a real juicy burger

My passion as a foodie is to be there where the magic happens: In the kitchen! A big thank you to all of the staff at The Butcher Badenerstrasse, that made this happen. I can now much better understand the work in a Burgerkitchen! Quite a lot of procedures the cooks follow to prepare the perfect burger.

A large part of the dishes can be ordered as gluten-free variation or low carb without bread!

The base for the perfect burger are high quality and fresh products. The Butcher uses regional Swiss Meat. A paddy has 140g and comes always medium cooked!
A highlight for all Vegan lovers is The Greenmountain Burger that is 100% plant based and produced in Switzerland (Graubünden). It is rich in proteins and fibre made of organic soy, pea and wheat proteins.
Available with a vegan bun. I personally recommend their traditional bun. It is one of the best in town and has a crust that is super tasty due to its beer marinade! At Badenerstrasse you can enjoy your burger in the lovely outdoor terrace!

From the moment of the order at the table it takes only 7 minutes until you get your burger on the plate!

Try the Guest favorite: Bacon & Cheese Burger

Get a variety of burgers from classical beef, Chorizo Beef to Pulled Pork BBQ and Caesar’s Chicken. Absolutely to try the Goat Cheese Burger, too!

My favorite is the classical Bacon & Cheese. The cheese mixture is a secret mix, the cheese doesn’t melt and is mild but aromatic and is places on some flavorful caramelized onions. Every burger comes with fresh lettuce, tomatoes and special sauces! The fries are made of local swiss potatoes. A secret for you: The same potatoes as the legendary Zweifel Chips! Order their home made ice teas as the ideal non-alcoholic refreshment or some regional craft beers.

Burgers vary between 13.30 CHF (simple Butcher Burger) to 18.30 CHF for the Bacon & Cheese to 20.30 CHF for the Chorizo Beef & Cheese.

Put Put Japanese Takeaway

putput

My personal highlight: Understanding that Japanese Curry is a real traditional food cooked at home, it brings the family together at one table

I am glad I found this cute little Japanese Takeaway in Zurich. It is located at Stauffacherstrasse 101 very close to Langstrasse. The place is a real Japanese bijou. Stepping inside the typical fancy Japanese Design stands out. Their charactere named “putput” is a cute chick in the manga style. You can admire it all around the shop. There are fancy putput objects as home made mugs or bags to purchase, too.

The owner Nao Shirato explains to me, that the food they serve is inspired by the recipes of her grandmother. That’s Japanese cuisine her family used to eat at home.

The curry base is a home made paste. Its taste is not comparable to a spicy Indian curry with coconut milk. I found this curry mild, thicker in the consistency.  The Potato inside where fingerlicking, a real value to my curry experience.

The choice of menu is simple. Different menus are available for vegetarians and non.

Try the super tasty home made Japanese Curry (veggie or chicken), the Gyudon bowl with beef, the Onigri (rice sandwich with meat, fish or veggie) or different buns filled with veggies, meat or azuki (sweet beans).  The home made ice tea is recommendable, too.
The miso soup tastes very authentic and comes with the main dish if you like. Choose the salad instead if this doesn’t match your choice.

Menu are available for 11.5o – 15.50 CHF. Get a bun for 6 CHF,  Gyudon 13.50-15.50 CHF, Onigiri 5.50 CHF
